London-based apparel label Dead Lotus Couture is calling attention to the stylistic appeal of natural latex fashion in a new collection, titled 'Operio.'
The silhouettes here are decisively retro, with inspiration being drawn from "cult cinema, [specifically Wes Anderson and John Carpenter], decadent [70s disco culture] and menacing moments." While some outfits are expressive in their tight fits and exaggerated shoulders, others boast a textural juxtaposition between the shiny surface of the latex, which was sustainably sourced, and the accent of the fake fur.
Dead Lotus Couture debuts its forward-thinking and vintage-informed natural latex collection with an animated video that is set on the background of "1970s TV music show Soul Train," making for an excellent thematic connection.
